    “There have been very few periods of my life when I could genuinely say I looked forward to coming to work/school every day, and that was definitely the case... You walk the walk with your incredible experience and your amazing personal fitness accomplishments. You care about your students and go above and beyond for them. That's a rare thing in this world and I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say I'm very grateful.”

    - Tom
